Restoring a lounge chair - Part 3

I am proud as punch to say that I have finished 'restoring' an old lounge chair I found in a garage sale. I am so happy with the final result!

If you want to be less impressed, you can read about how I did it in Part 1 and Part 2. Considering I had no idea what I was doing and attempted to re-invent the wheel while doing it, I think that the end result has made it all worthwhile.

Sewing the covers for the pre-cut foam I found in Spotlight was rather tricky.. but I took my time and having a geometric pattern really helped me line everything up nicely. I decided to make the covers removable with Velcro strips so I can wash them. The envelope-like holes that are held closed by the Velcro go at the back short edge of the cushions so they are hidden from view. Even with my lack of sewing skill, they amazingly they fit the foam like a glove.

I just love what the chair brings visually to my living area, and my next goal is to find some nice salmon-pink fabric to make a cushion for it.

What do you think? Have you restored any furniture lately?
